"There's always this drama, this undercurrent, these spooky feelings," says Sevigny in a behind-the-scenes video of her latest project. "Here I'm playing off of this ghost, this woman who is kind of haunting me."

Directed by celebrated videographer Maryam L'Ange with music by Eaux, the modern film noir was shot in the Los Altos Apartments, a Spanish-style building in L.A.'s Mid-City neighborhood. "It's deep in the Hollywood history," says L'Ange of the location. Stylist Emilie Kareh, who dressed the actress in pieces from the e-commerce website's upcoming fall 2014 collection, adds: "Of course, there's a touch of glamour, Hollywood glamour, because we're in Los Angeles, California, shooting in a very glamorous place."
